Tournament Finale Event Featured Exhibition by Professional Ping Pong Players
Fisher Brothers held its first ever week-long ping pong tournament for tenants of its Manhattan office portfolio. The tournament culminated in the championship event, in which the ground level of Park Avenue Plaza was transformed into a ping pong arena, complete with an emcee, music by a live DJ, and bleacher seating for spectators to take in all the action.
Hosted by Fisher Brothers, in partnership with ping pong social club SPiN New York, employees from the companies in Fisher Brothers’ four Manhattan office buildings were invited to participate in the contest.
After a week of fierce competition in which over 150 players took part in the hotly-contested tournament, David Xu of NYSE emerged the winner, edging out Dennis Lee of BlackRock for the championship. Spectators at the finale event were also treated to an exhibition game between professional players Michael Landers, the youngest U.S. National Champion, and Matt Suchy, a world-renowned player and coach.
“At Fisher Brothers, we are always looking for creative ways to enliven the workday for tenants,” said Partner Winston Fisher of Fisher Brothers. “We had a great response to this tournament, with over 200 tenants signing up to participate throughout the week and over 150 attending the championship event to cheer on their colleagues.”
